Adoptions without agencies : a study of independent adoptions by William Meezan( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purposes of this national study of independent, nonagency adoptions were: (1) to determine the experience of the parties involved (biological parents, adoptive parents, agencies, intermediaries, and law enforcement agents); (2) to identify agency policies, procedures and resources that deter agency adoptions and thus encourage independent adoptions; and (3) to identify weaknesses in state laws and regulations and their enforcement that allow abuses of the independent adoption process to continue. The study involved: (1) an analysis of adoption laws and regulations and their enforcement in all 50 states; (2) a questionnaire survey of one voluntary and one public adoption agency in each state to obtain information on their knowledge of independent adoption; and (3) an investigation of independent adoptions in 5 cities through personal interviews with adopting parents, biological mothers who relinquished children aged 2 or under, and independent adoption facilitators. Major topics focused on in the analysis included the role of adoption agencies; adoptive parents' concerns, their agency experiences, feelings about adoption and the risk involved; the experiences and concerns of the biological parents; the facilitators' involvement in the adoption field and with adoptive and biological parents; laws on adoptive placement; responses of attorneys general/district attorneys pertaining to the enforcement of state adoption laws; and policy recommendations for legal and agency changes that would reduce or eliminate the risks of independent adoptions.

The role of race, culture, and national origin in adoption by Madelyn Freundlich( Book )

Residential treatment of emotionally disturbed children; a descriptive study by Joseph H Reid( )

7 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the long search for more effective methods of treating children with personality disturbances specialized institutions have developed, loosely described under the general term, "residential treatment." They have one thing in common--the development of a total approach to therapy. Individual psychotherapy with the child and his parents, a therapeutically designed living experience and remedial education are all seen as parts of a whole. These treatment institutions, though diverse in their philosophy, origin and auspices, all result from attempts to find more successful ways of helping disturbed children. They have been established to provide treatment for the child for whom the child guidance clinics, foster care agencies, family agencies, and corrective institutions have been unable to provide adequate help. In this study we have attempted to describe 12 organizations whose purpose is the treatment of children with severe personality disorders. These specialized institutions have developed for the most part independent of each other and under the leadership of several professions and different types of organizations. From this description of the operation of 12 such organizations, it is hoped the reader may have a base from which to evaluate and better understand clinical studies and reports from residential treatment centers. Seven of the 12 organizations can be considered medical programs and are administered by physicians. Five are social agency programs, administered by social workers"--Preface.

Child care and working mothers; a study of arrangements made for daytime care of children by Florence A Ruderman( Book )

6 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960, the Child Welfare League of America began the Day Care Project to survey research to clarify and revise day care services. A three stage program assessed attitudes and practices in seven communities. Stage I tapped community opinions (namely, working mothers) on child welfare issues. Stage ii utilized field techniques to survey supplementary child care practices in 300 families. Stage iii surveyed 1400 day care facilities and studied licensing laws. When completed in 1964, the study revealed that (1) clientele came from normal homes, (2) children of working mothers need supplementary child care services, (3) much in-home care for infants is in a caretaker's home, (4) mothers want responsible care given and day care is frequently of poor quality, (5) staff reflects low standards of selection and staff is difficult to recruit, (6) virtues of family day care are seldom realized, and (7) good care must be differentiated by age of child. The findings suggest that current practices need to move toward developments of supplementary child care facilities which are independent of connotations of social work and public utility. (Wy)

The sexualized child in foster care : a guide for foster parents and other professionals by Sally G Hoyle( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest challenges in foster care is working with the increasing number of children who have been sexually abused or exhibit severe emotional and behavior problems. This book is intended as a practical guide with basic information and training tips for therapists and foster parents working with the sexualized child. It reviews research and clinical knowledge specifically relating to the sexualized child in foster care and the interventions that may be helpful in working with them. The developmental needs and normal sexual behavior of the preschooler, latency-aged child, and adolescent are all reviewed since clinical signs of sexual abuse appear slightly different in each of these groups. Chapter 1 discusses sexuality. Chapter 2 reviews what is normal sexual behavior. Chapter 3 presents the signs and symptoms of sexual abuse. Chapter 4 discusses assessment standards. Chapter 5 presents treatment options. Chapter 6 explains the sexually aggressive children in foster care. Chapter 7 considers the emotional factors for therapists working with these children. A resource section contains list of books; videos for children and adults; organizations that are available for abuse protection; and a list of assessment instruments. (Contains 66 references.) (JDM)
